Well, I have to test without proxy but I seem to need the proxy function 
in my situation where I an between 2 NAT devices. My ADSL modem/router 
NATs  from 192.168.1.x to my fixed external adres but since I cannot 
control this device, I have a Soekris with monowall 1.3b10 behind it 
which NATs from 192.168.10.x (and 20.x) to 192.166.1.1. Maybe  SIP is 
smart enough (with STUN) to corectly pass two NATting routers but Then I 
have to do more tests. 

Thanks
